    Re: I Support Marion

    from that article:
    ---
    She dropped her 200-meter time from a personal best of 22.50 in 2002 to 22.02 in 2003, at age 25.

    That's like a grand tenor gaining a half-octave at age 40.

    is it?

    can we call the metaphor police?

    Like I said before, White will become a sympathetic character in all of this if many more jackasses like this one expect the code of omerta from her. The only people who should be concerned about her singing are the cheats and their defenders.

    It took me longer than expected to find it, but here's the link to the very nasty article on Kelli White:

    My personal thoughts: Rick doesn't get it.

    Do you have a link for that one?

    As soon as Kelli White won the world championship, I said to myself that she was on the juice. She basically came out of nowhere to win and post incredible times.

    I read that one MJD. There was one yesterday from a respectable publication that just scathed Kelli White for cooperating with the USADA.

    Go figure.

    It's getting a bit vicious out there:

    "There is a major difference between a doper and someone who's just a plain dope, Marion, but why make it so
    blasted difficult to tell?"

    I'd say that having a former husband who was suspended four times for steroid abuse; employing as a trainer for a while who was the very same coach who dosed Ben Johnson with steroids for seven years some years earlier; having the checking account from which the largest single check was written to Balco by any athlete; winning the Olympic gold over Kelli White, who admitted the use of undetectable steroids back to the year 2000; being the mother of the child of Balco client and current 100 meter world record holder Tim Montgomery: yes, I would say that Marion Jones is indeed the most remarkable women's athlete in the world.

    In fact, I'll bet across the globe at this very moment there might be millions of persons "remarking" about Marion...

    Marion made the Wall St. Journal today, in the Weekend section,Stefan Fatsis column. You can't link off their pay web site.

    It's evident that things have come to a head for her, and she has to be cleared before the US champs. All cards should be on the table next week.

    She wouldn't need a team of lawyers if that were the case, would she?

    >It seems obvious she (and/or her ex) did employ
    >their services,

    She's already admitted that, after first denial.

    Word on the street is that THG wasn't even invented/marketed until after she was pregnant so there's no chance of her being involved with that. But the White revelations certainly suggest that other steroids and even EPO could be on the table.

    does anybody have any more information about when this meeting will be?

    An educated guess would be that she's going to admit taking BALCO supplements up to, but not including, THG. It seems obvious she (and/or her ex) did employ their services, but she has also asked that her specimen be retested, so she must not be hiding anything there. She probably knows where some of the skeletons are buried, but I don't see her going there.
